For Packrats Only: How to Clean Up, Clear Out and Dejunk Your Life Forever, by Don Aslett
Clutter's Last Stand: It's Time To De-junk Your Life!, by Don Aslett
These books provide an
exhausting exhaustive list of all the junk we buy or acquire; all the reasons we acquire junk; all the reasons we find it hard to part with junk; all the different ways there are to clean up, clear out, and dejunk; and all of the negative results of failing to dejunk. These books don't describe one method to simplify your life - it describes them all. The books are disorganized and one gets the impression that if you have read one Don Aslett book, you've read them all. The books themselves need to be dejunked. A heavy-handed editor would have done the trick.
On the other hand, I did find the books to be motivating and inspiring. So, if you feel helpless, don't know where to begin, and need someone to tell you, step by step, what do do, go buy The Flylady's Book. But if you are already on the right path and feel yourself getting into a slump, these books will do the trick.
